Rate the chances that CU will leave the Pac-12 to become part of a newly configured "Big Ten"
  • Low. The lack of success in the past 15 years will come back to bite the Buffs. USC, UCLA,, Oregon and Washington are far more attractive candidates for the Big Ten than is Colorado (47%, 145 Votes)
  • Medium. There are way too many moving parts right now. Officially, Texas and Oklahoma aren't leaving the Big 12 until 2025, so it's time to tap the brakes on realignment talk (41%, 126 Votes)
  • High. CU brings the Denver television market, a history of success, and the move makes geographic sense. I look forward to renewing CU's Thanksgiving rivalry game v. Nebraska! (12%, 35 Votes)

Which quote from the Lance Carl interview gives you the most optimism about the 2021 season?
  • "We will run the ball, and dictate the game with the run ... Personally, I love it when you have a quarterback that can make it 11-on-11 football" (46%, 89 Votes)
  • "We've had total buy-in from our student-athletes with (new strength and conditioning coach) Shannon (Turley) and his staff" ... "We will compete in every game we play in" (44%, 86 Votes)
  • "Karl (Dorrell) really feels that everyone on the team has a role. We will be a much better team as soon as everybody accepts their roles ... The team needs to be ego-free, team-centric" (10%, 20 Votes)

What for you would be the best scenario for CU if conference realignment is to get back into high gear?
  • That CU becomes part of a new "Pac-16", with some strong teams joining the conference (not just Big 12 leftovers like Oklahoma State and Texas Tech)) (40%, 94 Votes)
  • That the Big Ten be reconfigured, with Maryland and Rutgers joining the ACC, and CU joining the Big Ten as part of the new eight-team "Big Ten West" (36%, 84 Votes)
  • Right now, less is more. I hope that there isn't any new reconfiguration of the Pac-12 (or other leagues) for another few years (24%, 58 Votes)

Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff: "We'd be foolish not to listen if schools call us". Thoughts on the future of the Pac-12?
  • I'm just concerned about my Buffs. With two winning seasons in the past 13 years, CU doesn't have the same cache. I hope the Buffs aren't left without a chair when the realignment music stops (49%, 88 Votes)
  • If you're not moving forward, you're moving backward. The Pac-12 needs to be looking at expansion (or merger?). The conference needs to be looking at some of the Big 12 leftovers, and expand to 16 (35%, 62 Votes)
  • Not going to happen, at least not with the "Little Eight" schools. Land grant schools won't impress Pac-12 presidents; AD's won't see those schools bringing in more money for the conference (16%, 29 Votes)
